We oppose legalism on the front end of salvation. But are we as vigilant on the back end? Salvation is by God's grace through and through. The grace that saves us also keeps us.
"What must I do to be saved?" is a biblical question. Unfortunately, we often give unbiblical answers. The fact is we cannot make a decision for Jesus unless God makes it for us.

We love upgrading! Whether it's our phone, house, or car, we always want something newer or better. But what if we could be upgraded? This is exactly how God finishes the plan of salvation!
Did your kids get a wind-up toy for Easter? Maybe a bunny or a chick? This is what we are in God's hands. He winds us up and sets us down on a path that leads us to Him.
